The coronal hole solar wind stream is subsiding and our Sun has gone to sleep. No sunspot groups are currently visible on the earth-facing solar disk. That means we are in for some quiet space weather in the foreseeable future.
While we wait for more interesting space weather we like to wish all of our visitors a Merry Christmas! Please enjoy this realtime footage of an aurora display over Kiruna (Sweden) on 4 October of this year. Happy holidays!

A lot of people come to SpaceWeatherLive to follow the Sun's activity or if there is aurora to be seen, but with more traffic comes higher server costs. Consider a donation if you enjoy SpaceWeatherLive so we can keep the website online!
